We had driven past the restaurant many times, tonight we decided to go. We were not disappointed, from the moment we walked through the door the staff were very welcoming. The bar area is really cosy with the wood burner and the soft leather chairs and sofa. As one of the staff invited is to the table in the restaurant... More

I travelled on my own for a job interview and was made to feel very welcome. There was nothing to much trouble for Sean & his team. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and very homely. The restaurant staff & quality of food were commendable and should be very proud. Just to add the cream to the cake I got... More

Delightful Italian restaurant in the middle of the village with very comfortable bedrooms. Service is excellent and the food was delicious. Our room was big, great size bathroom and quiet. We really enjoyed our stay, and it made a great stop-over on our way back from Scotland. We would happily stay again.

Had a new years dinner with friends. They accommodated a wide range of tastes. The sea breem special was outstanding. The pastas and pizzas were also great. It may be a little pricey, but it was worth it. Authentic Italian.

Much enjoyed our stay over last weekend - the room was above our expectations (including fresh milk for tea and coffee in the room!) - great breakfasts, - and a fine meal on Saturday evening, which included one of the best wood oven pizzas I have had for a very long time. All to be recommended.

We enjoyed a delicious lunch in the restaurant. The food was truly excellent - highly recommend the alternative Sunday Lunch menu! The porchetta pork melted in the mouth and the calamari was really beautiful. Alongside the wonderful food, the staff are welcoming and attentive. We look forward to returning soon!

We stayed here for one night and had a meal in the restaurant. The food was great with a good selection. The surroundings were pleasant and the staff could not have been more accommodating. Bedroom was clean with all the essentials.

Warm and welcoming, log fire in the bar, wood-burning pizza oven in the heart of the restaurant, friendly staff, enthusiastic owner at the centre of everything. They readily put two extra beds into our (very clean and comfortable) room for our children and food at dinner and breakfast was excellent. A find and deserves to do well. Hope we come... More
